The boss of Rakuten, one of the major internet shopping sites in Japan, mentioned recently that English will have become the #1 company language by 2012 – accompanied by a call for executives to leave the company unless they learn English (Source: http://injapan.gaijinpot.com/2010/08/11/for-english-speakers-in-japan-new-opportunities-are-comin/).

This statement came amidst a government initiative changing Japanese immigration laws and residence permits.

Things are changing? Slowly?
